From police logs:
Police are investigating a fatal crash that occurred in the early morning
hours of Sunday, April 24. Around 1:50 a.m. police were called to the Fairfax County Parkway
near West Ox Road for a reported crash. Officers located a 1988 Oldsmobile Bravada in the
backyard of a home in the 13100 block of Lou Alice Way. An investigation determined the
vehicle was traveling north on the Fairfax County Parkway, just past the intersection of West Ox
Road, when the driver lost control of the vehicle. The Bravada went off the left side of the road
and rotated counter-clockwise. It traveled across the grass median and the southbound lanes of
the Parkway then began to roll as it reached the shoulder of the road. It continued up the
embankment, took out some trees and crashed through a wooden fence. The Bravada came to
rest on its roof in the backyard of the home. The driver, Arturo Cruz Zaldivar, 22, of Cocquina
Drive in Reston, was pronounced dead at the scene. A 20-year-old male passenger was treated
for minor injuries. Zaldivar was not wearing a seatbelt; the passenger was. This crash
investigation is ongoing. Speed and alcohol appear to be factors. Anyone with information is
